Smile Reshaping and Enamel Replacement with Veneers
Veneer Enamel Restoration
This patient came to see Dr. William Shattuck unhappy with the shape of her front teeth. She told Dr. Shattuck that she did not like the spaces between them, or the fact that they had worn down so far. She also did not like the darkness around of the edges of her teeth and wanted a comprehensive solution to brighten and reshape her smile. Her teeth had shifted and chipped due to a grinding habit she had developed over the years and even after orthodontics she remained unhappy with the result. As you can see in her BEFORE photo, her gums had also begun to droop. The spaces in between her teeth had caused her gum tissue to sag and take on a grey tinge which further dulled the appearance of her smile. The dull appearance of her gums was not only affecting her confidence in her smile, it was also an indication of unhealthy gums caused by the spacing between her teeth. Dr. William Shattuck recommended minimal preparation porcelain veneers to replace the patient's lost enamel, fill in the spaces between her teeth and brighten her smile with a beautiful and natural looking color chosen specifically for her skin tone.

As you can see the veneers not only brightened her smile and made her look years younger, but also closed the spaces between her teeth. Her gums now have that bright pink color, and shiny contour that makes a smile standout. By contouring the veneers specifically for this patient's mouth and smile, Dr. Shattuck has given this patient's gums proper support which will help keep the gums healthy and allow for improved home care including more effective brushing and flossing.
